Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The CBJ Assembly agreed to spent approximately $1.6 million to deckover the area between the Steamship Dock and Marine Park where the lightering float was located.
The project will include concrete and grass consistent with the park area around it.
A portion of the existing Steamship Dock deck will be demolished and rebuilt to ADA-compliant grades.
Construction funding has not been identified. The project will require an appropriation of passenger fees.
Originally the capital project was due to be funded in the fiscal year 2021 budget but capital funding has been delayed due to the lack of a cruise ship season.
The CBJ Planning Commission recommended the assembly approve the project.
